Colour blind?

Deputy PM Zahid, foot firmly in mouth this week, announced that UMNO is not colour blind and offered as proof that it was helping flood victims in Penang! What he meant, though did not say, is that the Government of Malaysia was doing what it was elected to do, help citizens in distress.The only surprising thing is that government help was offered. Penang does not vote BN. And won’t next time too.

As to colour blind was he referring to party colours or skin colours. A wiser man would have chosen his words more carefully.
